: race to the finish line. tuesday is the finish line. obama administration trying to get there before whatever we find out comes out. >> andrea: they were hoping that the video story and the coverup would take them past election but we see it's not the case. there are three failures, failure not to secure it in advance. the failure to not help rescue them while it was happening. the red herring was the video. now the bungling after. how did the media get in the consulate to get the ambassador's diary? how did the "new york times" have better intelligence where the suspect was drinking mango juice than the president did? why was the suspect then when he was sent to turkey not extra dieted to gitmo by the united states. why has this been bungled from the beginning, middle and end? the f.b.i. should be in the white house investigating the crime there. >> bob: please. >> eric: could president obama attained access through the f.b.i. sooner? why did it take -- >> dana: to the -- >> eric: to the detainee in tunisia. >> dana: interrogation and intelligence gathering is the most important thi
klein, author of the new york times best-seller, the amateur, all about the obama administration. good to see you. let's start with, first, the sound that we just shared with our audience. bill clinton not really performing up to bill clinton standards. he was mocking governor romney, talking about, well, i don't know about other folks, but in arkansas we would have liked president obama to have had the power to turn back the seas yesterday. i mean, it did not make a lick of sense. >> with obama himself, we have in this campaign, turned the tide back, he'll the planet, brought everybody together. it was he that made these averages comments. lou: as a candidate, as i recall. rummy mocked him in the republican national convention. there was nothing, you know, current about what he was being quoted as saying by president clinton. a contemporaneously. it was a silly, silly remark. >> it did not make any sense. a freer talking about sarcasm, who has been the most sarcastic in this whole campaign? it has been barack obama. i think he is taking a lesson from michele, his wife. super sarcastic
creation begin and we have seen all of the jobs lost during the four years of the obama administration regained. that is what you are going to hear from president obama at 8:30 this morning when the jobs numbers come out. we are certain it will be positive, create 125,000 jobs. if it's less than 100, republicans are going pounce on that. if it's more than 150 or close to 200, obama administration is going to go on that. what you are going to hear about is the unemployment rate, 7.8%. it drops, probably going go to 7.9%. christine will explain why the job loss and creation numbers are different from unemployment. the bar chart is the more important number. the bottom line is, all you are going to hear is spend and we are going tell you what matters. it is going to be a deciding factor for many voters. >> the jobs number is a number you see. you have been on the ground in ohio. we want to know what it feels like there when it comes to jobs. what are people saying? >> reporter: yeah. so, you know ohio has been hard hit. i was in youngstown, the second biggest deal maker in the country aft
to address the panel. you know have six prosecutions in the obama administration after three prior to -- after three prior prosecutions. you now have a press that is not just the new york times, not just the "washington post," but wikileaks, individuals no longer needing the mainstream media to put documents, formerly classified documents into the public environment. so it is a changing landscape on both sides. different kind of media and i think a different attitude in government, at least that is what appears to us. the rise and concerns about terrorism and then the concern for government secrecy, and the ability to transfer large amounts of data electronically. you know, if you think back to the pentagon papers, daniel ellsworth has to come to the new york times or a paper like the new york times to get the secret's out, and that was the only way to make them public, not so now. when the government wanted to do terrible things, they actually had to send people to break into his psychiatrist office. no longer necessary. they now have other tools for doing those kinds of things. i

that the obama administration promised if there are tapes that we could hear that caused ty woods to disobey orders, risk his military career, his life, and then he gave his life, why not release them to the american people before the election so we can get a full picture of the truth? i'm sure you'll join me in calling for that transparency. >> i would join you in calling ty woods a hero. > >> sean: why not release the tapes that caused him to disobey orders? >> you act as if the tape is conclusive. there's a much bigger story. >> sean: my sources tell me it's pretty damning, juan. they're begging for help. >> i've not heard that from anybody. >> sean: you learned it here first. >> the added security was asked for the capital in tripoli. >> sean: that's not true. the ambassador asked for security. it was denied. >> the undersecretary testified here in washington before congress to that, sean. > >> sean: we also have a woman who testified that the state department was watching this whole thing unfold in real-time. >> it's the same woman. >> sean: the president wouldn't acknowledge it two wee
. [♪...] >> sean: president obama just keeps digging himself into a deeper hole when it comes to his administration's cover up of the benghazi terrorist attack. during an interview when asked about the changing story, that keeps coming out of the white house, he did what he does best, deny, deflect, and not tell the truth. watch this. >> we've got to figure out what happened and fix it, and most importantly, we've got to bring those folks who carried that out to justice. that's exactly what we're going to do. but i -- i do take offense, as i've said during one of the debates, with some suggestion that, you know, in any way we haven't tried to make sure that the american people knew as information was coming in what we believed happened. > >> sean: why two weeks after the attack were you still denying it was a terrorist attack when we now know that our state department and intelligence knew and were watching this in real-time? so you're offended, mr. president? what about the families of the four americans who died in that attack? apparently people that were begging for help and assistance and that
question mar marks. >> very much so. >> bret: still ahead, more inconsistencies between what the obama administration knew and what it said about the libya terror attack. first, karl rove and joe trippi on who is ahead in the presidential voting and what really matters, the electoral college map. we do it every week. coming up. as we head to break, cape may, new jersey, look in darkness there at the rin and the wind. keep it here. i know the name of eight princesses. i'm an expert on softball. and tea parties. i'll have more awkward conversations than i'm equipped for because i'm raising two girls on my own. i'll worry about the economy more than a few times before they're grown. but it's for them, so i've found a way. who matters most to you says the most about you. massmutual is owned by our policyholders so they matter most to us. massmutual. we'll help you get there.

% enrichment activities. but the key problem here is that the obama administration, like the bush administration before it, refuses to acknowledge clearly iran's right to enrich uranium on its own soil. even if the obama administration, and there are rumors they are think of doing this after they're elected, were to offer iran a bigger carrot, as if the iranians were donkeys, and a final shot at diplomacy, there is no indication that the obama administration is willing to clearly recognize iran's right to enriched uranium on its own soil. and, therefore, there won't be a deal. even if there's no deal and iran doesn't collapse, some policy elites continue to posit that sanctions and their version of diplomacy is all worth it. it is worth any and because iranians, middle eastern publics, and americans most importantly will come to see that iran's is suffering and inability to get a deal on the nuclear issue is the iranian government's fault. and, therefore, it will be understandable, and even justified for the united states in the end to strike iran militarily. but we should have no

implication that the barack obama administration has. when i listen to these republicans, they're despicable. they practice all types of obstacles in front of this man. they lie. romney is a serial liar. host: let's go back to the economy. talk to me about the comparisons in your mind about the u.s. economy and overseas economy and why your optimism is, in fact, or, as you say, based on how our economy is doing versus economies from overseas. >> well, relatively speaking, when you take a look at some of the european economies, particularly some of the cutbacks in government and all it did was fire the economy up into a worse situation, when you take a look at france, they elected a new president there, and he's trying to implement the same type of progressive policies that the obama administration has done. it's clear that stimulus has worked despite the distortions about it. it appears this appears to be working in some other parts of europe. therefore, i think when you take a relative view of it, and you understand that we're recovering from the deepest recession since the depression, i me
another continuing resolution used to fund the governments, the obama administration had not passed a budget was coming up. the republicans, the republican leaders believe it was an easy vote, and their own members voted against it. and the appropriations committee , which designs these continuing resolutions and all other spending bills was serious and they insisted on meeting with the. they said, you need to punish these members. we are the ones being punished. were doing everything you want us to do, cutting spending, and these guys still one vote for it. any to fall in line. and he said family can't do that anymore. it will make mars of the. >> so they don't feel like they're in a position to lead on matters of the debt ceiling or anything else. >> in fact, i think it is interesting. this fall but has been devoted to a the debt ceiling. specifically, you know, long magazine stories to the so-called grand bargain between the speaker and obama that fell apart. from my standpoint all of that is when and sales, with all due respect to the authors of those stories and books because t
. obama did describe the events as an act of terror twice. some officials of the obama administration suggested that the united states had no indication that it was a planned assault. did you have any response to that? guest: i would point out that, several times the obama situation pointed to it being a protest that got out of hand. i do believe that the white house was not straight forward with the american people from the beginning. host: florida, on our independent line. caller: question to the chair person -- and why did the candidates go into the michigan or ohio area and to make a statement about relocating to china? and never retracted the statement or put out anything from his committee. every time he makes a misstatement, he never comes back and tries to correct it to explain the coup methodology behind that? guest: biden not get that question. -- i did not get that question. host: he had concerns he was raising about the truth telling of that. guest: i think it is clear that the president has not been a firm with china. we have copyrights and trademarks being piloted with c

and left that new jersey governor chris christie has said favorable things about the obama administration's efforts in those early days after hurricane sandy. republicans worried that christie saying anything favorable about obama is politically disloyal need to remember that a governor's first responsibility is to his or her state and its people. those in the media looking to determine political winners and losers in this situation should stop. we republicans ought to be proud of public officials who, like christie, are faithful to the job they're elected to do. thank you, haley barbour. thank you, alex, for picking that. >> the governor of mississippi during katrina. >> he would know. and it all stops, right, in time of crisis? >> almost two minds of that. >> why are you of two minds about that? >> on the one hand, haley barbour did go through the crucible of katrina and bonded with his state and recognized the importance of federal and state cooperation. on the other hand, the notion that haley barbour's big giant brand not having to think about politics, i'm a little skeptical of. >>
